Unicorn, mythological animal resembling a horse or a goat with a single horn on its forehead. The unicorn appeared in early Mesopotamian artworks, and it also was referred to in the ancient myths of India and earliest description in Greek literature of a single-horned (Greek monokerōs, Latin unicornis) animal was by the historian Ctesias (c. bce), who related that the Indian. It is the best book I have ever read it has every single history-legend about the unicorn and makes you believe unicorns are the most powerful mythical creatures in the hole universe. I have learned a lot of things about that book and hope Nigel right another book about unicorns because I am quite sure that the second one will be better/5(6).

The Lungfish, the Dodo, and the Unicorn () by Willy Ley is the first in a classic series of books by Ley on zoological and cryptozoological topics. Willy Ley, space scientist with a deep interest in zoology, ignited my interest both in astronomy and cryptozoology when I was very young. UNI THE UNICORN will appeal to readers who like magic and princess stories and enjoy the stylized pictures of a sparkly, friendly unicorn with a twinkling eye. But the fun is in how author Amy Krouse Rosenthal flips the usual idea of people believing in unicorns with a misfit unicorn believing in people.

This remains one of my favorites. Full of just the right amount of attitude, this is the story of Unicorn, who has always sort of been the big man (or unicorn) on campus.“ THE UNICORN: The saintly hermit, midway through his prayers stopped suddenly, and raised his eyes to witness the unbelievable: for there before him stood the legendary creature, startling white, that had approached, soundlessly, pleading with his eyes.

The legs, so delicately shaped, balanced a body wrought of finest ivory.The section(s) with unicorn crafts and unicorn recipes may be useful in my craft and swapping endeavors.

What I did not love about this book was the section on unicorn worship. I think that an altar for the sake of the worship of a u I'm giving this book 3 stars because I "liked it."/5(24).
